Flexbox Grid

Flexbox and CSS Grid are the most popular responsive layout models which are widely supported across platforms and browsers. Our upcoming UB Atoms theme will support by both Flexbox and CSS Grid by default. If Flexbox is disabled, the CSS Grid will be used.

In this post, we’ll take a closer at the Flexbox that UB Atoms does support and learn how it helps distribute and align content in ways that Magento pages need.

A brief introduction about Flexbox
